New heavy-duty, locking flip-up lens caps for Nightforce riflescopes


Owners of Nightforce ATACR™, B.E.A.S.T.™ and full-size NXS™ riflescopes can now benefit from the most rugged, well-made protective flip-up lens caps on the market.  The new lens caps, manufactured to Nightforce specifications by Tenebraex, provide both superb protection and extreme functionality in the field.

For the riflescope’s objective lens, an adapter screws into the objective’s threads; for the eyepiece, the adapter clamps on.  The caps themselves then securely lock into place onto the adapters.  Both caps flip up with finger pressure.  Once open, the caps can be locked into place with slight backwards pressure.  The caps can be rotated to provide the opening angle preferred by the shooter. Nightforce lens caps are made of extremely tough, heavy-duty black plastic.  Unlike lesser quality covers, they will not accidentally detach from the riflescope, they are not affected by extreme environments, and they will not deteriorate.  They are designed specifically for high-quality riflescopes, providing years of effective protection against dust, moisture, abrasion and scratches.  They are quick in the field with positive response, designed to be left on the riflescope at all times.

Retailing for $90.00 for a set of two, Nightforce flip-up lens caps are as robust and reliable as the riflescopes they protect.  They are available at Nightforce dealers nationwide.  For more information, call 208.476.9814 or visit

Nightforce Announces new TS-80 Hi-DEF Spotting Scope

TS-80 Spotting Scope

Nightforce announces new TS-80™ Hi-Def™ 20-60x spotting scope


Nightforce is introducing the TS-80™ Hi-Def™ 20-60x spotting scope, following hot on the heels of its acclaimed TS-82™ model, winner of Field & Stream magazine’s “Best of the Best” award for 2014.

The TS-80™ Hi-Def™ includes extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, fully broadband multi-coated, which provides outstanding color contrast, brilliant images and excellent resolution; a virtually indestructible, thermally stable magnesium alloy body; large, precise focus and magnification rings, easy to use even when wearing gloves; and non-slip rubber armor that is quiet and stands up to the harshest of field conditions.

An 80mm objective lens results in excellent low-light performance. The TS-80’s™ internal roof prism design also aids in light transmission, as opposed to mirror designs used in lesser spotting scopes which can absorb critical light rays.  The prism design also helps reduce eye fatigue while extending viewing time.  The new spotter is waterproof and thoroughly shock tested.

Like all Nightforce optics, the TS-80™ is ergonomically designed for maximum comfort and quick response.  The silky smooth, knurled magnification ring zooms from 20 to 60x in less than a half turn.  Its focus ring adjusts from 20 feet to infinity in just two turns.  An adjustable, removable eyecup accommodates eyeglasses.  A center ring allows 360-degree rotation of the TS-80™ on a tripod, and it can be locked in place at any degree of rotation.  There are tactile detents at the 45-, 90- and 180-degree positions. The ring’s foot fits many quick-release tripods, and also accepts a standard ¼ inch tripod screw. An integral, retractable eyeshade reduces extraneous light while providing protection for the lens.

Optional accessories include a heavy-duty protective sleeve and a handsome, rugged carrying case.  The new Nightforce TS-80™ Hi-Def 20-60x spotting scope, assembled in the USA, provides an optimal balance of performance, features, and lasting value at a retail price of $1595.00.

An Investment in Your Future and Ours

In 2011, Nightforce embarked on a $1 million expansion of our headquarters in Orofino, Idaho. As a result of its completion in 2012, we are now able to provide faster delivery times and more R&D capabilities which have resulted in a number of innovative new products, and even better customer service.

2012: Two Decades of Brilliance

Back in 1992, Australian hunter and shooter Dr. Ray Dennis had a problem. You see, hunting at night in Australia is not only legal, but wildly popular. Several years earlier, Ray had founded Lightforce Australia Pty. Ltd., for the purpose of manufacturing the finest spotlights on the planet. Ray’s lights lit up the night for hunting vehicles and vastly improved a hunter’s ability to find and spot targets in the darkness.

Trouble was, there was no riflescope on the market of sufficient quality to take advantage of Ray’s superb lights. So he set out to build his own. The principles he followed then have remained unchanged over two decades—to gather the finest materials, utilize the most advanced technology and talent, cut no corners whatsoever, and build what is simply the most rugged, most precise, most uncompromising riflescope money can buy.

Judging by the growth of the company he founded, he succeeded beyond his wildest dreams.

Today, Nightforce riflescopes are used by professional and competition shooters, avid hunters and our armed forces under incredibly demanding conditions in every corner of the globe.

As good as our scopes might be, we also recognize that the satisfaction of you, our customer, is what ultimately matters most. You will find that philosophy paramount in our service, our support, and the way we do business.

No doubt, many things will change in the next 20 years.

Those things won’t.
